The following quote is from An Echo in the Bone by Diana Gabaldon, chapter 18, “Pulling Teeth.” Copyright©️ 2009 by Diana Gabaldon, all rights reserved.

“‘D’ye want me to speak to this Beauchamp?’ Jamie asked abruptly. ‘I could perhaps find out what he means toward you.’
Fergus’s mouth drew in a bit, then relaxed as he shook his head.
‘No,’ he said. ‘I said I had heard this man had made inquiries concerning me in Edenton?’
‘Ye’re sure it is you?’ Not that the ground in North Carolina crawled with Claudels, but still …
“I think so, yes.’ Fergus spoke very softly, with an eye on Germain, who had started emitting soft croaks, evidently conversing with the frogs in his shirt. ‘The person who told me of this said that man had not only a name, but a small information, of sorts. That the Claudel Fraser he sought had been taken from Paris by a tall red-haired Scotsman. Named James Fraser. So I think you cannot speak to him, no.’”

[> That made me lol. Fergus’ dry humor - yes, I think Jamie might stand out - just a tad. -- Kathy in PA, Wed, December 13 2023, 3:57:09

[> The odd thing is he wasn't Fergus Claudel Fraser until he married Marsali and Jamie gave him his last name. So how would Percy know Claudel Fraser was taken from Paris by a tall red-haired Scotsman? -- DianaH, Wed, December 13 2023, 9:08:02
